An Avalanche of Pianos
From September 30, 1971, this is a recording of what was a live broadcast from Gordon’s Piano Shop, 1776 Shattuck Avenue, Berkeley CA, of local composer, John Dinwiddie’s piece for twenty-four, (that’s right, count them), pianos. The listening public was encouraged to come down to the shop to witness this extraordinary performance which also included Philip Corner’s “C Major Chord”.
